For Families

Play & Learn: In Gallery, at Home and Outside!

Our October half term workshops are back! Click here to find out more and join us this half term to create a Home from Home

We still have lots for you to do, whether you are able to visit or are at home.

Our galleries are open, so why not visit our exhibitions, and join in with our Family Explorer Activities in the gallery .

Watch Artist Sian and Little Artist Aoife, take you through activites to do in the gallery during your visit, there may also be some pupils from Huntingdon Academy helping them out. If you are not able to visit still take a look as there are instructions and downloads so you can do these activities at home.

If you can't make it to us, the Play and Learn Team have lots of activities for you to do Play & Learn Family Activities at Home and outside! With new activities added each week.

Some of the activities you can do with everyday objects, however others might require a few art materials. If this is something you would like, you can reserve and pick up a free materials pack from our reception or we can post them out to you. Look out for the Free Materials listed at the top of the activity.

If you are a little unsure trying activities at home here’s a few tips from our Play and Learn Team who share their thoughts about creating a space for playing and making at home. You can also find out a little bit about them and what they've been up to Getting to know us: Play and Learn Team

You could also take a look at our Virtual Reality tour of past exhibitions and related activites.

Be sure to share your ‘in Gallery, at Home and Outside!’ experience on our social media, at #NCmaking so we can see what amazing ways you have tried our activities. Take a look here to see what we've all been up to. Can you spot your artwork?
